Transforming McMaster’s campus into a living laboratory for sustainability, accessibility, and inclusion is a university priority. 

In the summer of 2021, engagement sessions took place with various student, faculty, and staff from across the campus community and from this a set of principles to help guide the strategy were developed. In an open survey, the majority of students, faculty and staff who responded agreed with the proposed guiding principles, which are indigeneity, equity, diversity, accessibility, and inclusion, sustainability work as a collaborative, innovative solutions tailored to the community and sharing and recognizing sustainability progress and achievements across the community.
